TBT: Find Your Stop Sign
“In the name of God, stop a moment. Cease your work, look around.”
We are all busy beyond measure in these modern times, I know. If it’s not the office demanding your attention, it’s the laundry, or an aging parent, a needy friend, or an empty refrigerator. But if you don’t attend to it all right this minute, guess what? All of that will still be there. So, if you do nothing else today, do this:
Stop all the activity, just for a moment, and be still. Listen to the hum of your house or the laughter of your kids. Breathe deeply the smell of the summer grass and watch as fireflies come out at dusk. Feel the warmth of your child’s back as you hug them goodnight. And most of all, look around at the multitude of blessings you’ve been granted.
Peace begins with pause,
